So, although I have had the letters printed for weeks now (on festive green paper with a hand drawn tree in the bottom corner) and I have bought a gaggle of festive stamps (from Costco) and I rushed and stressed over getting a nice picture of the kids to include in the cards, they are still sitting here waiting for me to put them in the envelopes and mail them out.
I was contemplating how we get onto a person's Christmas card list. There is one person who faithfully sends us a card every year, more faithfully than any other it seems. Every time we open it, my husband and I look at each other and ask if the other remembers who it is. Neither one of us can. It's been several years now. I wonder if I should tell them we are mistakenly on their list, or start sending them a card and pretend we are the best long lost friends ever. We think it might be someone "famous" according to the pictures they send.
Anyway, here is a copy of our newsletter for 2011. Hope you all had a Merry Christmas! Happy New year! (and Happy Valentine's)
